How to change the pinned explorer icon to display "Computer" instead of "Libraries" in Windows 7

Like most I am very happy with Windows 7, however the pinned Explorer icon drives me nuts as it opens “libraries” instead of “computer” – don’t worry though all is not lost!

Create a new shortcut on your desktop and as a destination path put the following %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /E,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} Once this is created right click and pin to taskbar.

You can remove the old icon by right clicking and selecting unpin from taskbar.
